Heaven is a place in Park Slope.

Or so it seemed at the Seventh Heaven street fair on Sunday, when 23 blocks of Seventh Avenue filled up with food and fun. Throngs of people turned out to celebrate the festival’s 40th year.

“It was great,” said Park Sloper Sylvia Maier, mother of 11-year-old Noah, who got his hair cut at the shindig. “It was crowded. It was nice to see that amount of people.”

Noah wasn’t the only one having fun on Sunday. Three-year-old Slope denizen Izel Rivera, got some hang time in the bouncy castles, which her dad said are a valuable commodity.

“There’s limited opportunities for the bouncy houses,” Paul Rivera said. “She had fun, for sure.”

Five hundred vendors served up treats at the fair, which stretched from Flatbush Avenue to 18th Street.
